Teaming up for a retail romp,  Jennifer Garner stepped out with Violet for a trip to the mall in Santa Monica on Thursday (August 27).

Hitting up a number of shops, the mother/daughter duo spent quite a bit of their time at the popular “Build-a-Bear” workshop.

Meanwhile, Miss Garner continues to receive praise for her natural look – as she recently topped a Parade magazine poll as most natural beauty.

Getting 27% of the vote, the “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” actress was followed up by Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon, while Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Obama and Gwyneth Paltrow also received their fair share of votes.
